The Wound Healing Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital provides state-of-the-art
treatments for slow-healing and chronic wounds—usually the result of an
underlying medical condition, such as diabetes, neuropathy, arthritis,
venous insufficiency, peripheral arterial disease, autoimmune disease
and factors associated with immobility.
The Wound Healing Center offers an interdisciplinary approach to
treating wounds. We bring together board-certified specialists in
vascular surgery, podiatry, plastic surgery, infectious diseases and
hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Certified wound care nurses round out the
team. Patients initially undergo a complete assessment to identify the
underlying cause of the wound, and an individualized treatment plan is
devised. When necessary, consultations in vascular intervention,
diabetic and nutrition education, infectious disease, orthotics,
compression therapy and other disciplines are available. We work
directly with the primary and/or referring physicians to keep them
informed of the patient's progress.
Many factors affect the healing of wounds. Diabetes, weight gain, heart
disease, poor circulation and medications are just a few of the
conditions that can slow down or stop a wound from healing.
Consequently, wound healing is a complex process involving the patient,
the environment and the healthcare professional. Our skilled physicians
and staff provide a comprehensive program designed to heal the wounds,
educate the patient and prevent recurrence.

Arterial and/or venous

Initial complete assessment and treatment plan with first visit
